$716 Billion

October 4th, 2012at 07:23am Posted by Eli

By my count, Mitt Romney, Compassionate Defender Of The Elderly, accused Obama of cutting $716 billion out of Medicare six times in last night’s debate, and Obama never made the slightest effort to rebut it, or even to point out that the Ryan budget plan does the exact same thing.  That’s probably going to hurt Obama the most, but overall he didn’t seem to really respond to Romney so much as just recite whatever talking points were in the general vicinity of the question.

Really really terrible, inept performance.  Romney’s a liar and he came across as a condescending bully, but at least he showed confidence and conviction in what he was saying, and didn’t let anything go unchallenged.

Of course, Dubya’s first debate performance in 2004 was probably one of the worst of all time, and he still managed to win anyway.  And Obama isn’t nearly as terrible or disliked as Bush was, while Mitt is even stiffer and tone-deafer than Kerry was, so ultimately it may not even matter.  Unless he fails to show up at any of the debates.
